The relationship was over weeks ago...
We all thought it was a little strange that Michelle Keegan didn’t seem bothered by the fact that Max George was snogging other girls, and last night it was revealed that the couple broke up weeks ago. Now not so strange, just sad.
According to sources the pair’s busy work schedules had made it a struggle for them to keep their relationship going, with Max spending most of the year in America with The Wanted and Michelle filming for Coronation Street.
Last night a spokesman for Max confirmed to The Mirror that the couple had split: "He and Michelle are no longer together...They have been separated for a number of weeks, but hoped to keep this a private matter.”
Max and Michelle first announced their relationship back in January 2011 and by June that year were engaged. However earlier this year the couple confirmed that they were no longer getting married but still an item, although they were rarely seen in one another’s company.
An insider told The Mirror that they are both “devastated” but hope to remain “close friends”.
“Max and Michelle have tried to keep this quiet for the time being. Only their closest friends and family know about this. It’s very sad for both of them, but they are going to try and remain close friends.
"At the moment they’re both really busy with work and focusing on that. “Both are devastated that they couldn’t make it work.
“Max has been spending lots of time in the US with The Wanted, and Michelle has been busy filming Corrie. It has been a long-distance relationship for a while now and they’ve struggled to keep things going.”
Well this is all a bit rubbish isn’t it? Michelle you go and eat loads of ice cream and play with your nice hair; and Max admire your face in the mirror and get Jay to give you some piggy backs. We should so be relationship councillors.
